The Languages Department is a consistently high performing department, with above national progress scores. Students are taught French from Year 7 and all have the option to study Spanish as a second modern foreign language in Year 8. We offer French and Spanish to GCSE and make provision for native speakers of many other languages such as Arabic, Turkish and German. We aim to make topics relevant and engaging, encouraging creativity and collaboration in the classroom, whilst underpinning the learning with firm grammatical progression.
